1964 220Sb Front Calipers, does anything else fit

Hi, both my front brake callipers are shot, the pistons are rusty and the seals have disintegrated, I was just wondering if anyone knew if anything else fits either from a later model Merc or from a different car. Mine has the 3 piston ATE type and I can't find replacement pistons here

quite a few later ones will fit including ones from a 108 250S, 280S 66-71 era.

Any f caliper from 108, 109, 110, 111, and 113 chassis 6-cylinder 1965-71 will work fine -- you'll need to swap both fronts, and use different b/pads, but they'll work like a charm.

I don't necessarily believe you can't get pistons for the 3-piston calipers anymore. I had mine rebuily about 2 years ago - it turns out that Humber (Super Snipe from memory) used the same pistons. But they were expensive. Better to just get the regular ones and fix them if required.
